lewis, also the first woman to be executed in virginia, convicted of plotting the murder of her husband and stepson for insurance money. she died by way of lethal injection, speaking her final words to her daughter, saying i want kathy to know i love her and i'm very sorry, end quote. protestors outside the prison argued lewis was treated unfairly in that case. martha: right now, we are awaiting a major hearing on the voter intimidation case that involves the new black panther party. one of the key government players in this controversy is about to give his side of this story. steve centanni is live at the u.s. commission on civil rights in washington. steve, bring us up to date on where this case stands now and who we expect to hear from today. >> reporter: we expect to hear from two lawyers in the justice department, both of whom recommended going ahead with prosecution of this case. now, let me take you back to 2008, the election day, the presidential election, ale pooing place in philadelphia, where three new black panther party members were standing outside, wearing black paramilit
virginia beach, up towards washington. this is a triple threat. not only are we going to get heavy rain, we're going to get high winds and the threat for foreign aidoes, the tornado watch in effect for tarts of the mid atlantic towards the northeast, d.c., parts of new jersey, tornado watch for you until 1:00 p.m. local time. they will probably extend that watch throughout the afternoon up towards the northeast. it is going to be a mess, it's going to be hard to get home today. if you have a flight, be prepared to either wait in the terminal or take -- make a lot of phone calls to see if your flight is delayed or canceled. martha, back to you. martha: from new jersey, that is something you don't hear of every day. janice, thank you very much. this nasty weather is making it tough to get around. thanks. there's a mess in the air and on the rails, up and down the east coast. what better to do in this situation? i say go live on the plaza in the pouring rain. peter, how is it out there? >> reporter: calm before the storm. but all that rain is already causing tons of problems for people up and
of west virginia, he wants to be a democratic senator, just yesterday, he came out and said tax cuts should be held in place. he joins people like joe lieberman, ben nelson of nebraska, bill nelson of florida, jim webb of virginia, all these are moderate democrats. how do you buck that trend when these people are drib ling out by the day? >> you're exactly right, bill. if the conservative -- the conservative democrats are worried, they understand that what's been driving this conversation for the longest time has been that the white house has not been paying sufficient attention to the economy, that the unemployment numbers remain high, and that most americans are pessimistic about what the future holds, and this is everything from the tax hike to the decifit. but for the moment, what we saw last week was the president going on the offensive and saying where are the ideas, where is the help coming from with republicans and the white house has forced congressman boehner to say he would agree to tax cuts even if it meant the tax cuts for the rich weren't coming through. that as you kno
mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th
